Most of the shoots I have done until now have been quite light and airy, so when photographer Grethe Rosseaux and I were brainstorming for this one, I told her I’d like to do something darker. We got make-up artist, Sam Ellenberger, on-board and headed to Paarl Mountain for our shoot.
The light in the forest had other ideas, however. Beautiful sunbeams shot through the trees, bathing us in soft light. We decided to go with it, and Sam used more earthy make-up shades for the earlier shots. As the sun set and the woods got a bit darker, so did my make-up.
I am beyond pleased with the result of this shoot, and I can’t thank Grethe, Sam and her husband, Bruce, enough for the work and passion that went into it!
I would also like to thank Style Bar for the fresh highlights and cut I had done before the shoot. And then, a BIG thank you to designer, Janu Steyn, for the exquisite marsala infinity dress I wore in the last shot. The dress lives up to its name, with an infinite amount of ways to style it. I truly believe it’s a wardrobe must-have for all women, as it can be worn to basically any event. And at only R1000, I’d say it’s an amazing investment. Find more on Janu’s Facebook page here.
